I was talking to my brother Brandon last weekend, and something came up about the smokestacks you can see from Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach. He told me when he was little, he always thought it was a hot dog factory. And he decided as a kid that it must’ve been owned by Willy Wonka’s brother, Billy Bonka.
So it’s Billy Bonka’s Hot Dog Factory.
I think that’s pretty much the funniest thing ever.
I remember wondering about those smokestacks when I was 6, too. I don’t think I ever really had a creative theory as to what was going on there, because a friend told me dirty water went there, and there was fire in the smokestacks that were burning off the poo in the water.
Which I guess totally made sense to me.
So the question is: what really goes on at that building? I did hear later on that it was a water purification plant, so my 6 year old friend was mostly right, I guess. When you were a kid, what did you think went on there? Was there a mysterious building where you grew up, too?
